Easter 2024

I reluctantly didn’t attempt requesting that my brother come to visit this year for Easter, as I suspected Priory Group would once again deny him of a visit with a spurious excuse, regardless of a Court decision regarding contact.
Additionally, as Herefordshire councils punitive restriction on communication with them extends into another year, we are afforded no support, and I remain denied of trying to explain to him that our mother died four years ago.

Letter to Cllr Lester

Below is my latest letter to Councillor Lester after asking him for assistance, as lead councillor, in obtaining crucial documents. The letter
resulting in receiving another vexatious response from Herefordshire Council, which you can read in previous posts.
I’ve sent a copy to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal telling them I would endeavour to seek some legal advice, notably as Forcepoint, the council’s VPN/Proxy provider, neglected to address my SAR regarding data logs.

Another Vexatious Letter from Herefordshire Council

Yesterday, I received another offensive letter from Claire Porter of Herefordshire Council after writing to and asking the Lead Councillor Jonathan Lester for assistance regarding an ongoing Investigatory Powers Tribunal case & obtaining a copy of a court order for Ms Porter’s declared continued monitoring of my website & social media.

My Letter, which was addressed to and for the attention of Councillor Lester can be read below, and the response I received from MS Porter below that or on this page: http://whileincare.info/threatening-letters/

Whether Cllr Lester received my letter or it was intercepted beforehand, I don’t currently know. But I am deeply disappointed in the response I received, and will be more so if I find the councillor did receive my letter but chose to disregard my request for help in obtaining copies of the requested for the Investigatory Powers Tribunal case, noting Ms Porter’s reference to the continued monitoring of my social media etc. Such would potentially imply, as with previous council staff I have experience, they would rather conceal wrong than hold council colleagues to account.

CQC Reports Priory Group Care home

I have been reviewing CQC reports, evidence I gave them and records I have regarding my brother ‘s ‘care’ home. Below are four images, extracts from four CQC reports for the same home between 2015 & 2019. All conducted before coronavirus and the pandemic became a consistent excuse for inadequate services, care or support.

Additionally, while Priory Group managers were telling me my brother had a lovely room with Rupert the Bear painted on the wall, and CQC inspectors rated the home ‘Good’, the below is what his room was like. My brother didn’t even have a sheet on the mattress of his bed. How an inspector doesn’t notice basic things like this, is astonishing.

In another CQC report is said ‘People had access to healthcare professionals when they required them.’

During this time my brother had missed doctor’s appointment and again required much-needed dental treatment that was neglected to be addressed. Just why so much and repeatedly CQC inspector/s reports conflict with reality, I can only assume is to appease the provider, having simultaneously employed Priory Group staff as CQC inspector and involved them in evidenced concerns without declaring a conflict of interest.

While I could continue to highlight conflict with the CQC reports, such as staff turnover, having replaced managers several times in three years alone, I will leave it for another day and end by saying I highly suspect it’s not the only home to have a number of erroneous CQC reports.

 

 

 

 

 

hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP)

 

I only recently found out you can take legal action for hospital-acquired pneumonia up to 3 years after it occurred.

I’m sadly confident my mother wouldn’t have died from it after getting hypoxia if Herefordshire Council hadn’t abandoned her leaving her to suffer and deteriorate in 2020.
It maybe too late for me to seek justice for my mother but knowing this may be of some help to you and eventually provide some closure in the event you raise a case if your loved one died similarly due to poor hospital care.

Letter to Priory Group Court of Protection

Sixteen days ago, I sent the below letter to Rebekah Cresswell, The Priory Group’s Head of Legal and cc’d the Head of Legal at the Care Quality Commission.
To date, neither organisation has informed me that they have started Court proceedings. Therefore, I will now write to the Court of Protection, sending them a copy of the letter to The Priory Group, asking what I need to do to start proceedings myself.

Having received no response from Rebekah Cresswell & The Priory Group Head of Legal since sending them and the Head of Legal at the Care Quality Commission a copy of my letter asking them to start court proceedings, I will now draft a letter to the Court of Protection to try & start proceeding for my brother.

 

Letter to Head Councillor Regarding A Court Order

On the 28th of December 2023, I sent the below letter via signed for delivery to my Head Councillor (Jonathan Lester) asking for their assistance in obtaining a copy of a Court Order that Herefordshire Council should possess for their continued declared monitoring of my website and social media to be lawful, after several years of doing so and sending multiple threats of legal action and imposing punitive restriction on communication for almost ten years.
I also envisage needing their assistance to obtain additional evidence for Investigatory Powers Tribunal case concerning Herefordshire Council. To date, disappointingly, I have received no response. Similar with asking my local ward councillor for assistance.

I have sent today, 6th February 2024, the below follow-up letter to Cllr Lester, which has been hand-delivered for his attention to Herefordshire Council with proof of delivery and will await their reply for a further 30 days before considering the next step I should take regarding Herefordshire Council.

Letter from Sean O’Connor and My Response

I’ve got behind with the blog over recent weeks. But as Herefordshire Council continue their campaign of psychological abuse, punitive restrictions, harassment and deceit, I continue the blog.
Below is the most recent letter from Herefordshire Council’s solicitor, Sean O’Connor, and my response.
O’Connor, refusing to provide a copy of what must be a newly acquired court order to me, which the council must obtain for their declared monitoring, while attempting to gaslight me.

I start by posting my letter of the 4th of December 2023 to councillors, which Mr O’Connor refers to.

The below is what I received from Sean O’Connor in response.

My response (below), while it could be longer going more in-depth about health, timeline, inactions and concealment by Herefordshire Council staff, it took considerable time to draft and check I have tried to keep it as short as I could.

Reply to hfd Council Sean O'Connor letter 25 December 2023_Redacted

 

I will inform the SRA and send copies to councillors for them to forward to Mr O’Connor.
And I still expect to receive the previous evidence I have asked for and a copy of the court order permitting continued monitoring of my website and social media.

The package of 53 copies of letter to Mr O’Connor which I had delivered to Herefordshire Council  today.

Because I suspect Mr O’Connor will not be completely honest or accurate regarding the letters in the package, I include copies of the cover letters (including two individual ones for specfic councillors) below.

Accepted Legal Action

Once again, after being lied to, threatened and harassed by Herefordshire council, I have accepted their proposed legal action against me.
I have asked local councillors for assistance, as can be read in my letter to one of them, below.
I have also requested the councillors obtain the court order allowing the continued monitoring of my website and social media, as the local council declared and conveyed to me was happening through their letter from the Director of Governance & Law, Claire Porter.

As of posting my letter and to date, neither councillor had contacted me. So I will write a follow up letter to them.

Below is a redacted copy of my follow-up letter, to which Cllr Lester replied but disappointingly not Cllr Owens.
